ABERDEEN could swoop for England attacking coach Allan Russell if Stephen Glass lands the Dons job.
Former midfielder Glass is being eyed by his old club having grown his coaching credentials in MLS with Atlanta United.
SunSport have revealed Glass' plans to bring in Celtic skipper Scott Brown and England coach Russell if he wins the Aberdeen job.
It is thought that Gareth Southgate would retain his key backroom staff member for international breaks.
But the Three Lions will fear disruption to their coaching team with Euro 2020 less than three months away.
Russell, 40, was born in Scotland and enjoyed a playing career with the likes of Hamilton, St Mirren, Macclesfield and Carolina RailHawks.
The Glaswegian joined the Three Lions in March 2017 and was credited with England's stunning work from set pieces in the 2018 World Cup.
Before the stint, he worked as a freelance striker coach and charged £1,000-a-session, working with Wilfried Zaha, Andre Gray and more.
He even enjoyed a stint as a model and dancer – performing alongside Christina Aguilera at the 2003 MTV Awards.
England bossSouthgate has previously said of Russell: "There are very few people who actually work at this level of detail — looking at technique, where goals come from.

"With more senior players that tends not to happen because you are going from game-to-game. But Allan focuses specifically on technique."
The Aberdeen option has emerged following Derek McInnes' shock exit from Pittodrie.
Paul Sheerin and Barry Robson will take temporary charge of the club, which sits fourth in the SPFL.
The club hope to identify a replacement in the coming weeks.
